    I’ll never forget the first time I saw my FI! We worked together in different buildings, and I walked into a training that he would be leading, and let me tell you, if I didn’t believe at instant connection then, I do now! I *had* to know who he was. Tried to ask around work, tried to find him on social media. Nothing!

    Fast forward two summers later, our schedules matched up and we were in the same place at the same time for a portion of our day. He was magnetic. Outgoing, great at his job. Turns out, he had been curious about me the whole time too.

    We started seeing eachother that summer. The rest is history!

    @cc33ammy:  met up from a dating app, where i was accidentally like an hour late to our first date, had dinner, i was able to open up right away with him… continued to lightly date for 5 months, he really liked me but explained he was fearful that i wouldnt want something serious with him and he would get hurt…then, when we went to hangout with one of his buddies, he was fearful id get snatched by one of them, and immediately put his tail between his legs, and was asking practically begging to drive me home, or follow me home, and being extra extra protective over me, and then that week he asked me to be his gf, and weve been dating for 3 years now, live together and plan to be engaged this year. 🙂


    so i would say. it was positive. 🙂

    Also, I thought he was extremely attractive. Good height for me since im tall, he has a good build, and very very nice, easy to talk to, friendly, and he has this natural comforting vibe he gives off that just makes you gravitate to him and feel safe and secure. and hes just so easy going! you cazn just sit in silence comfortably in public, and i felt like we were already an item, and i felt that unity feeling. also, hes soo dang smart, and i love it bc we challenge each others critical thinking skills and its greazt.


    side note, first time we were intimate, the outside light hit his skin perfectly and he had his eyes closed for a moment, and i swear to god i wanted to take a photo of him, bc at that moment, i was like ‘what a greek god’ lol. whats funny is that in the moment after, as he was looking at and appreciating me, under his breath whispered, ‘f***, youre a goddess’. and im there watching him, admiring me, saying that. (insert heart pounding here) lol.

    @cc33ammy:  Very positive! We met while working retail and my first impression of him was that he was silly and goofy and funny. He made me belly laugh within five minutes of meeting him and I swear I fell in love with him within minutes. We were friends for about a year before we started dating.

    He is one of my cousin’s best friends and we met at various events over the years, but neither of us remembers those first meetings. When I ended my last relationship three years ago, my cousin and his wife decided this friend and I would be perfect together. He invited my now husband along to a family bbq and with zero prompting beyond that, we were inseparable from that day on. I liked his smile and the way he helped me with the dishes while everyone else was in the pool. I liked how good he was with my cousin’s kids. So for the first meeting that we remember, very very positive. Before that? Apparently complete indifference!

    SO and I are both divorced and this was another attempt to get to know someone. We matched on bumble at the end of January. He was so smart and I loved talking to him back and forth on the app. We started texting and agreed to meet at a restaurant in a town about 45 minutes from us both. 

    My first impression after our 4 hours in the restaurant talking was how smart, awkward but funny, and how sweet he was. I called my mum on the drive home and told her that he was who I was supposed to spend my life with. Got home from the date and told R that I deleted bumble. 

    He says how beautiful and intelligent I am is his first impression and that my smile reignited the light in his life. He knew that night that he believed in love on a first date after spending the time talking and when he kissed me good night, it sealed the deal. Before my text even sent that night, he also told me via text that he deleted bumble. 

    He moves in later this month, the ring is bought, and we’ve talked about a proposal later this year. 

    “when you know, you know” and I’m so grateful our paths crossed!

    The story that we tell everyone is: we met through mutual friends

    The real story: I walked into a bar that only serves beer and pizza with a group of friends to meet another group of friends. I was barely together with my ex at this point. Also, I was DRUNK. Like beyond fun drunk, I was sloppy-im-about-to-vomit drunk. Then I laid eyes on this very cute guy in the group we were meeting wearing a chunky cable knit white sweater. I thought – hes cute but definately gay LOL….fast forward five years, and here we are about to get engaged. 🙂 

    His first impression of me was: wow shes cute, but wow shes drunk. And that folks, is how our love story started.

    It was a blind date, I didn’t like him. 

    He was shy and didn’t really say much. I had just gotten out of a 3 year relationship where I had been cheated on so I didn’t know what I wanted. 

    We began texting and that’s when I really got to know him. 

    I think he liked me, we don’t really talk about it that much honestly.

    Oh god, I think ours was kind of mixed. We were both fresh off of divorces and I was in no way looking for a relationship, neither was he.

    On top of that, I’d resigned myself to likely having to resort to online dating because I was working so much and so busy kind of rediscovering myself that meeting a man in real life seemed like it wouldn’t happen. So, when I did meet DH, I was like “oh my god I met a man in the wild what do I even do!?!”

    I was so nervous and flustered interacting with him

    He says his first impression of me was that he thought I was really beautiful and funny. My first impression of him was that he was really gentle and sweet– despite his very manly man look and persona.
